review extracts: for full reviews click here
“The recording of the C minor trio, new to me, is delectable…. The recording is also superb for 1942. The pianist is a classicist to her fingertips, throwing off pearl-like runs of notes with a consistently lovely tone, and her artistry is fully matched by her colleagues. The “Ghost” …is as splendid as I remember it, with a heartfelt slow movement. This lovely disc carries an unequivocal recommendation.” – Tully Potter (Classic Record Collector)
“dynamically propelled and sensitively shaped performances” - Tom Hall (Culture Magazine)
“The new “historic” label Divine Art places us in its debt with a generally excellent reissue” – Rob Cowan (The Gramophone)
